Narrogin students are bringing the history of their town alive in a visual arts project.

Narrogin Senior High School visual arts, design and photography teacher Zoe Quartermaine said the project was about exploring Narrogin history by working with archive images and colour and animation.

Ms Quartermaine said the project, Plenty of Everything, was an opportunity for students to explore the town’s history by adding new life to archival images from the Town Library.

“The images have been donated by members of the Narrogin community over the years and range from buildings to events and people,” she said.

“Students have used Photoshop to reinvigorate the images by adding colour, images and animations.”

She said it was fantastic to see how creative the Year 7-12 students have been.

“The project has sparked interest from members of the community and the students love having the opportunity to explore Narrogin’s history through these images,” she said.

Plenty of Everything will be displayed in late July at Arts Narrogin and at the Narrogin Agricultural Show later this year.
